Glass Doctor® of Livonia, MI, specialists will provide your business with manual door closer repair and maintenance services to guarantee the first impression your customers have is a good one.

How Door Closers Work

A manual door closer allows users to open doors with ease no matter how heavy they might be. A door closer will give the user the feeling of slight resistance as they push the door open. Once that resistance passes, the door will glide open. The door will gently return to its frame once the user has gone through the portal.

Door Closer Repair

If you're having issues with your door closer, don't attempt to repair it yourself. You may void the closer warranty if an untrained person tries to fix the mechanism. Our Glass Doctor of Livonia, MI, specialists, have the extensive training required to install, maintain and repair door closers. Trust our team to tackle common door closer problems.

The Wrong Types of Door Closers

The heavier a door is, the stronger the springs need to be. If the wrong type of door closer is installed, it could cause some problems, including:

  • Misalignments
  • Damage to the door closer
  • Damage to the door
  • Potential injuries to the users

Door closers are improperly installed or adjusted: Our specialists have access to the tools required to install and maintain door closers. They will ensure that the door closer remains in good working condition for a long time to come by preventing:

  • Misalignments
  • Doorframe damage
  • Unexpected door movements

Seal repairs and low oil levels: A broken seal will result in the exposure of clearance gaps, which in turn will leave your hardware vulnerable and could lead to lubricant leaks. Oil leaks are typically caused by mechanical issues with the door closer, including:

  • Failed seals
  • Broken O-rings
  • Missing screws

A professional should replace the door closer's oil. Oil helps to lubricate the door closer so that your doors won't open or close too quickly, thereby preventing injuries to the user or damage to the door.

Difficult to lock doorways: A door that has issues locking poses a security risk to your business. It could also affect the condition of the doorframe, door closer and locking mechanism.
